LADDER RESCUE AND SELF RESCUE - OVER THE EDGE

(Field Training) - As students plan to enter the field of wind turbines, workers need to be trained in high-angle rescue. Climbing and descending the wind turbine needs to address the possibility for injury to occur during the climb process. The course will focus on how to rescue co-workers as well as personal rescue on the ladder and working at heights on the nacelle. The “over-the-edge” portion of the course will enable students to have hands-on instruction of these processes. The lab practical will include a full day. "
